Latest awards from The Robertson Trust - December and January

Please note that The Robertson Trust has published its new Giving Strategy. This sets out the priorities we will have when awarding funds through our open grants programme. The existing application form and guidelines can still be used until July 31st. In line with our existing procedures, we will aim to assess and present all applications received by this date to our September Board meeting. In the event that we are unable to do so, your application may be held until our November meeting. In such cases a member of staff will contact you and provide any assistance required to realign your application with the new Giving Strategy. Find out all you need to know here.

Please find a full list of our Small and Continuation Awards from December and January. Going forward, these awards will be added to the website on a monthly basis. Our Main and Major awards, meanwhile, will be added after each of our four Giving Committees this year.

Care and Wellbeing - 15 awards (£220,000)
This strand focuses on improving people’s physical and mental health. It recognises the need to address the significant health inequalities which exist in Scotland and reduce the levels of exclusion faced by some of the most vulnerable members of our society. In addition to encouraging preventative approaches to improve health and wellbeing, this Strand will also incorporate responsive approaches which support those with mental or physical ill-health to live independently. - Read more about this strand
